Claudia Swinburn

Claudia’s love of travel burned bright from a young age, inheriting her mum’s vibrant passion for vivacious adventure and new experiences. Family ventures to exotic and incredible destinations were an integral part of her childhood, creating a special place for travel in her life.

During a three-week trip across India with family and friends, Claudia became enthralled by its astonishing history, delicious cuisine and colourful nature, fuelling her ongoing desire to experience the world’s oasis of different cultures and communities. Graduating from Birmingham University with a degree in Ancient History, her longing to discover everything about the world’s fascinating past became stronger than ever before. Travel and adventure are home to the majority of her most treasured memories, with her recent safari trip in South Africa and island hopping around Thailand some of her most favoured experiences.

Her profound passion for travel led her straight to Pelorus’ doors at the beginning of 2023, where she joined the team as a Travel Executive.

Number one unforgettable travel experience?

Watching the sun set behind the Taj Mahal, it was absolutely breath-taking. The flaming colours melted exquisitely across the horizon, I truly understood why it’s a Wonder of the World, it almost didn’t feel real!


Top of your travel bucket list?

The list is constantly changing, but right now it would definitely be hot-air ballooning over Old Bagan in Myanmar. Up that high in the sky at misty morning and looking out over the ancient city would just be a dream.


Who is your ultimate travel partner?

Definitely my mum! We share the same zest for excitement and adventure, and we always have so much fun. However, I have always imagined how special and enlightening it would be to travel alongside Sir David Attenborough.
